Nice and filling, with a decent price!
My aunt got me a couple of these as a gift. I'm currently a college student and I get to do fieldwork with my professors every so often, so I'm away from home for most of the week. On campus the cheapest filling meal is around $8, and that's without a drink. Out in the field you bring a lunch or a snack, which is usually a cold sandwich of some sort. I'm a fan of hot meals at reasonable prices, and that's just what these are; Tasty, filling meals for a good price considering how convenient they are (all you need is water).
Each meal I got was about 1255 calories excluding the little candy. If you can do without the side dish you can save a little by buying the BASIC EBM and a MRE Heater, and you'll also cut out around 200 cal in the process.

MRE is the acronym for Meals-Ready-to-Eat. These pouch meals were originally designed for our soldiers in the U.S. Military. These dishes are precooked and can be eaten cold or heated. Great attention goes into developing the recipes for MRE’s.
